Library Director

Hello All,

I am Lindsey Hanes and I am the Library Director here at Garrett Memorial Library.

A little about myself: Lindseywebsitepic.jpg

I moved to Moulton from a big city life in Indiana when I was in elementary school. I immediately fell in love with the small town and farming atmosphere. I knew growing up, that Moulton was my home and I wouldn’t move anywhere else. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have three fun, rowdy, and loving children. I work on our small farm when I am not at the library.

I found my love for reading a few years ago when I lost a close loved one. It was my way of coping, I guess. Reading for me is deeper than just reading words on a page; I feel for the characters, I imagine / travel to the setting where the story is taking place, and actually feel a part of the story. I sometimes cry or even laugh out loud when I am reading a book (my husband gives me a look like I'm crazy. haha). I think it is very important to find what genre captures your mind, heart, and imagination to really enjoy what you are reading. If you are unsure what to read, stop in and I will gladly help you find something that interests you. I hope to see you soon.
